Nasutuceratops: Meet The Big-Nosed Horned-Face Dinsosaur

Scientists have uncovered the skull of a never-before-known dinosaur with cow-like horns. Its name, Nasutuceratops meaning "big-nosed horned face," is accurate if not so kind. Researchers say the large-nosed beast is a relative of the another horned dinosaur -- the Triceratops.

Despite its namesake schnoz, scientists say the horns are the truly distinctive feature. The fact that they point straight forward rather than up separate this specimen from other types in the same family. More research is needed but analysis of this dinosaur could uncover more facts about how different relatives interacted with each other.
